[Intermission] First Anniversary~夏の日のSerenade~

July 21, 2008 at 12:55 pm (cosplay(コスプレ))

 OMG, come to think of it, it’s been a year since I started this blog. I have never thought I could keep blogging for a year because I gave up in a few months all this time. I really want to say thank you who visit here and leave a comment. Thanks to all of you, I could keep writing so far…I am very happy. I want to do my best from now on! これからも頑張ります!ありがとうございます!

 So I wanted to cerebrate myself somehow…Yes, I shall cosplay again! Well, which character…uh…okay, back to my first cosplay, I did the character from the certain otome game. Then again I gotta cosplay someone from an otome game! So I decided to cosplay him.

 He is Tsukimori Len (月森 蓮) in Kin’iro no Corda -primo passo-(金色のコルダ) which is based on the same title otome game I have played next to Harukanaru toki no naka de. The reason why I chose him is because I thought he could suit me more than any other guys in this anime. Tsuchiura is a bit muscular, Shimizu is shota-looking, Yunoki is almost a 女装少年, and Hihara‘s hairstyle doesn’t suit me. So the left is just Tsukimori. His characteristic is definitely tsundere. But I am sure he speaks and shows his dere-side more than Rukawa does.

 Tsukimori is well-bred and so proud to everybody else and even himself. The heroine is just a schoolgirl who is given a special violin by the fairy and has to willy-nilly attend the music competition. So she shall practice the violin and fall in love with your favorite…There’s no need to explain anymore, huh?

 I must say this is the hardest cosplay I have ever done. First look at his hair. It’s light blue, isn’t it? I don’t see a lot of characters whose hair is light blue except for bishoujos. Anyway, I bought a wig and got the hairdresser to cut as usual. But the funny thing is that he thought I was going to cosplay Ayanami Rei because of the wig’s color. No way, if I really did it, I would be immediately killed by Ayanami’s fans. However, the problem was not only the wig’s color, but eyebrows. Since the hair is light blue, the eyebrows should be dyed as the same color. Otherwise it would look very weird. So I had to get the eyeshadow to dye my eyebrows.



 I had to practice this…yes, it was so embrrassing for such an ojisan to buy an eyeshadow at the store. You can call me hantai or whatever you want!! I can’t look back now, so I paid for the contact lenses. As usual, I used the auction to get the costume. Darn it, I was fooled by them. There was not a school vest though the auctioneer showed me the complete outfit. Anyway, I shopped around and got it.


 The most important property for Corda cosplayers is the instrument for each character possesses. As for Tsukimori, I needed a violin. I tried to find out the cheapest one…but this was difficult. I don’t remember how many times I was beaten by other auctioneers. But I made it, I got this 1000-yen viloin.

 Okay, I got ready. So today I had a photoshooting. But umm…for some reason almost all the photos are covered with something purple. How come? The room was too bright, is that why? Anyway, I seriously need a photographer. But I am always rejected because I am a man. It’s not fair. こんなの不公平だよ!

 I shall upload some photos those are still okay.


 Play a tender lullaby to me…

    ..maybe I should make a blog in English too ^^;a

  8. bangin said,

    Thank you, and you, always come here and leave a comment. You make me keep going…How do you say thank you in your language?

    Yes, if you start a blog in English, I can go and understand you more. ^^

  9. Neohybrid_kai said,

    Well in Indonesian, that would be “terima kasih” for “thank you” or “terima kasih banyak” for “thank you very much” but that’s the formal way. When its among friends or young people, we’ll say “makasih” (short version from terima kasih) or use the english word “thank you” or when among friends in anime/manga/game circle we use “sankyu” ^^
